Research Guide for ANTH 409

Creating a Proposal with a Plan for your Paper

Create a 1/2 page to full page outline of your paper with details of where you want to take it:

  • Identify your thesis statement or research question clearly
  • Provide justification of why your thesis statement or research question is important
  • Create an outline of the arguments you built from your sources and how they're related to each other:
    • Define each argument in a few sentences
    • Include a transition sentence between argument definitions to show how they are connected

Identify questions you still have, for instance:

  • about your topic or your thesis statement
  • about doing research
  • about writing your research paper
  • any other concerns or questions you have
